Round 20

17/6 vs Coffs United

Coming off our loss to Urunga we really wanted to put this game away, as Coffs were just above us on the table. We again started really well and looked great in the first 15 minutes. Despite this Coffs got the 1st goal against the run of play, after some scrappy defending by us. We struck back almost immediately with some good finishing from Pariss and went to half time 1-1

In the 2nd half Coffs started to gain control of midfield, and we put ourselves under pressure with some poor ball control. 2 quick goals and we found ourselves down 1-3, but we again fought back and got to 2-2 with 15 minutes remaining. Despite throwing everything at United we could not quite get the 3rd goal and went down 2-3.

Great games from Clare and Shauna who were pressured constantly by a very aggressive Coffs striker and a clearly intimidated referee giving repeated free kicks against us.
